The Fast and Furious spinoff "Hobbs and Shaw" is bringing "havoc, hell and mayhem," according to Dawyne Johnson, and Idris Elba's character will be behind it.

Johnson shared a first look at Elba in action via Instagram on Thursday. Thanks to Johnson's post, we know that his new co-star plays a dangerous villain named Brixton.

"I learned a long time ago (when I was a very sinful eyebrow raising villainous man in the crazy world of pro wrestling;) that heroes are only as great as their greatest villains," Johnson wrote in part. "A pleasure to introduce the man himself @idriselba we brought in to our Fast & Furious franchise to wreak havoc, hell and mayhem on our heroes HOBBS & SHAW."

The actor also promised the "showdown of all showdowns."



Elba shared the same photo via his own Instagram account, and he added that it "feels amazing to be working with [Johnson] and [Jason Statham] and to be joining the Fast & Furious family."

Their characters have a high bar to clear as they follow a series of eight high-octane action flicks, but we're excited to see how this "havoc, hell and mayhem" comes about.

"Hobbs and Shaw" opens July 26.
